The upcoming film Rampage, starring Dwayne Johnson, has been moved up a week, from April 20 to April 13. The change is likely due to the recent rescheduling of Avengers: Infinity War from May 4 to April 27. The new release date for Rampage puts it opposite Overboard, Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, The Miracle Season and The Rider.
Rampage stars Dwayne Johnson (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (Billions), Jake Lacy (Girls), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead). Also featuring P.J. Byrne (The Wolf of Wall Street), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (Daredevil).
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to half a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing. The screenplay was penned by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, and the story is by Ryan Engle.
